Album review -- Happy Savage, "Treehugger" (hypermusic) - "Sometimes low-budget discs from local bands are more enjoyable than high-budget major label productions because of the raw energy, sheer, unadulterated talent, and damn-it-we-mean-it vibe that comes shining through on them. Seattle's Happy Savage has made such a disc. In concert, Happy Savage stretches out into credible and enjoyable 20-minute jams, often on [Grateful] Dead songs like "The Other One" or "Fire On The Mountain" [as on their live CD, "The Ancient One"]. On this record, however, they demonstrate the strength of their songwriting, and ability to be concise, giving voice to the environmental concerns and alienation from modernity that were more often found in the Dead's audience than in their music, in fine three to five minute rock songs. The title track alone makes this a great gift for the music-loving activist in your circles. A strong disc demonstrating that folks in the Great Northwest looking for a good time would do well to check out Happy Savage."
(da Flower Punk,
"Somewhere between psychedelic space jams, and rolling grooves, they have that Grateful Dead/Little Feat sound about them that makes you want to dance. Happy Savage is really a band that will do well on the larger venues and tours. Definitely a lot of fun and worth checking out." (Pat Ferris,
